So now that we have reached the dog days of summer, its time to try again to keep our lawns green.
Here are a few tips I picked up from popularmechanics.com.
The a.m. is the best time to water the lawn because the air is cooler and there’s usually not much wind to blow the droplets. In the middle of the day, water evaporates too quickly. And in the evenings, water can cling to the blades of grass overnight, which can cause lawn diseases. Along with mowing the grass too short, he says, watering at night is about the worst thing to do for a lawn.
Homeowners who can’t water in the mornings before work should do it on a weekend morning. The best time is early in the morning: 4 a.m. to 10 a.m.
